The George H. Gallup, Jr. Distinguished Lecture Series, named in honor of noted pollster George Gallup, Jr., brings scholars, public officials, and governmental leaders to the University campus whose Christian faith has shaped their expertise and leadership. These lectures, coupled with personal interaction with faculty, staff, and students, provide a forum for distinguished leaders to share their insights with the University community. The lectures span traditional disciplinary boundaries and involve individuals of exceptional accomplishment representing a broad spectrum of backgrounds and interests. Mr. Gallup inaugurated the lecture series in the spring of 2003.

The William M. Pinson Baptist History Lecture Series has been established by Dallas Baptist University as an expression of gratitude for Dr. William Pinson’s service to Baptists throughout the United States, including serving as a pastor, seminary professor, seminary president, and Baptist denominational leader. Dr. Pinson’s presence on the DBU campus has been well noted over the years, as he annually speaks to all incoming DBU freshmen during chapel services about the history and heritage of Baptists in Texas and throughout the United States. His wife, Bobbie Pinson, serves as a DBU trustee. Through this endowed lecture series, Dr. Pinson’s insight and knowledge will continue to be made available for DBU students in the years to come.
